My client is a leading US systematic trading firm that trades multiple asset classes and time zones globally using automated strategies.

The company uses a variety of strategies to trade multiple asset classes globally in a variety of frequencies. Primarily this has been around equities markets but they also extensively trade FX & other derivative products.

Sophisticated risk management is a big part of the firm's ethos. Portfolio managers work closely with quants, risk analysts & developers to implement and optimise their ideas.

Currently they are looking to hire a Quant Researcher to join the quant trading team in Singapore.

Strong programming skills in Python and C++ would be a plus.

A PhD is desired for the role and the ideal candidate will have 2-4 years experience within financial markets although a Masters will also be considered. Key is to have a strong mathematics background. 

An excellent opportunity to join an rapidly expanding firm while learning more about a successful investment process.
